Miss Nelson' Page



My name is Cara Nelson and I am teaching Grade 3 at East Lake School.  I have a love for children and a passion to teach. In my view, there is nothing more fulfilling to work amongst children, as they have such creative minds and unique personalities.
On my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and my son. I also enjoy music, piano, reading, hiking, camping and arts and crafts.

I believe that all students have different skills, talents, and gifts that they bring into the classroom. My aim is to create a safe and secure environment, providing proper support and guidance for students to develop emotionally, intellectually, and psychologically. I also believe in nurturing students sense of curiosity and natural wonderment they have for for the world around them.  Therefore, I will provide them with many valuable experiences in order for them to explore their environment and learn different areas of interest.

I also find communication is key for student success.  I care about each and every student and want to assist them in any way I possibly can.  Therefore, please contact me via Bloomz or at cnelson if you need to contact me.
